India athletes won as many as 28 medals to register their best-ever Asian Athletics Championship in Thailand. During this five-day athletic meet, India won 6 gold, 13 silver and 9 bronze medals. Previously, India's best result at the Asian Athletic Championship was in Bhubaneshwar in 2017 where India had won 27 medals. India finished third just behind Japan and China in the Asian Athletics Championship 2023 medal tally.
Jyothi Yarraji, Abdulla Aboobacker, the mixed relay team, and Murali Sreeshankar were definitely the stars for India in the championship. Jyothi Yarraji who already has the National record in 100m hurdles, clocked 13.08 to win the gold along with her silver in the 200m race (23.13)
Abdulla Aboobacker's 16.92 m was good enough to big India the gold in the Men's triple jump category. The Indian mixed 4*400 relay team clocked 3:14.70 to showcase the future of Indian track and field by winning the Gold medal. Ajay Kumar Saroj was impressive as well with his 3:41.51 to win the Gold in Men's 1500-meter race.
Along with them, it was Parul Chaudhary who was superb with two medals in the Asian Athletics Championship 2023 for India. Parul won one gold in 3000 metres steeplechase and one silver in the Women's 5000m race. Swapna Barman's 5840 points in the Heptathlon with so much injury in recent times, was an impressive feat as well.
But, it was Murali Sreeshankar's 8.37m long jump that caught all the attention. Sreeshankar's final jump not only made sure he will have the silver medal, but it also gave him the ticket to Paris Olympics 2024 as well.
